Call for Papers: 2012 ILLiad International Conference

Help us celebrate ILLiad’s 15th Anniversary by making this annual conference the best ever! The ILLiad Conference is a smash hit every year because of you. We need your ideas, your experience, your expertise. Now’s the time to get creative and submit your proposal ideas.

Plans are already in full swing for the 2012 ILLiad Conference. The location is once again the beautiful Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront hotel. We expect the conference to be a sellout, as it is every year, when more than 300 ILLiad users come together to see what's new and learn tips and tricks from colleagues and Atlas staff.

Pre-Conference: March 21, 2012
Conference: March 22-23, 2012

Deadline for Presentation Submissions: November 28, 2011

Details on Conference Programs

  • Conference programs are one hour.
  • Programs can be single presenter or panel.
  • Programs can be specific to ILLiad or a more general discussion about resource sharing. Most importantly they should be engaging and informative.

What's in it for you (besides knowing you’re giving back to the ILLiad community)? If your presentation proposal is accepted, we will waive your conference registration fee (sorry, not the pre-conference fee). In these days of tight budgets, this could save your institution $185. Poster Session participants will receive a thank you gift.

We've made it easy to submit your presentation proposal online. To get the wheels turning, check out the program lineups from 2010 and 2011—they will give you an idea of the type of programs that have been presented in the past.
